Biographical or Historical Information
Street's chief interest, however, was writing, and after her two children started school, she wrote poems, children's stories, trade journal articles, and radio plays. Her first short story, "Hoecake and Buttermilk" was published in 1939, and her first novel for children, Fiddler's Fancy, in 1955. Subsequent published works include Moccasin Tracks (1955), Candle Love Feast (1959), Drover's Gold (1961), Dulcie's Whale (1963), North Carolina on Parade (1966) and Judaculla's Handprint (1976). Mrs. Street was keenly interested in the history of North Carolina, and based her stories for children on carefully researched historical subjects.
